HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Huntington University sophomore Miranda Palmer was named the Crossroads League Player of the Week for the week of December 15.

The 5-6 guard had a banner day on Saturday in HU’s 124-106 comeback win over #RV Olivet Nazarene University. There was no rest for the weary as Palmer played 39 minutes in a game that was more like a track meet than a basketball game.

She scored a record-breaking 48 points which included going 15-for-21 from the field and 17-for-21 from the charity stripe. She smashed the previous school record of 40 points held by Becky Stump and Cindy Schweikhardt.

The Foresters’ 124 points will also go dowm in the record books for most points scored in a game.

On the season, Palmer is averaging 22.2 points per game which places her 5th in NAIA Division II. She is shooting 88.2 percent from the free throw line, the 11th best percentage among her NAIA peers, and averages three 3-pointers per game for the 12th spot nationally. To date she has tallied 580 points for a career average of 13.2 ppg.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 16 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 222 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations.
